Nightforce Rifle Scopes?

My Brother has a .300 Magnum and wants to change scopes up a few notches, He has the money to buy a Nightforce.There is one question I have no answer for is what Retical should he order, its not for punching paper only, he has a field in Michigan's UP where he can shoot 450 and 500 yards Max...I like the NPR2/ and the MLR. Guys, I am open for all opinions.
He has a M40A5 in Remington and shoots .75@250 all day.(with the best hand loads and a cold barrel) The Rifle was built by Williams Gun Sight in Davison Michigan.

    Either the NPR2 or the NPR1 are great hunting/target reticles!!

    NightForce, in my opinion is the best scope for the money!!

    Choice of reticles is a personal thing. I think the NP-R2 is the perfect reticle.

    I have the NP-R2 and love it. I personally find the NP-R1 to be too busy. That's just my .02 tho .

    In my opinion the Nightforce is the best scope buy for your money. But I have not seen all the scopes out there. I did however do a lot research and what I found was that it had most of the features of the more costly scopes and was well received by the military as well as hunters. I, like many people who have taken the time to write here, like the NP-R2 recticle. And Like many people all over America am more familar with that system. What I do know from the experts is that both system (M.O.A. & Mil dot) work well if you take the time to learn them.
